Does SPD Get Better With Age And Occupational Therapy?
Our 21 month old son was recently diagnosed with SPD. He's a crasher and jumper and has difficulty focusing on tasks until he's tired out. He's also yet to say a word. He's been in speech therapy 2 x per week for almost 3 months and his verbal noises are increasing. He just recently started occupational therapy 2x per week. Our concern is will he ever be "normal?" That is, will he be able to focus and school, talk, read, learn and live an independent and productive life as an adult? Is SPD associated with learning disabilities or is this something that will improve with OT and speech therapy?
All we hear is that each child is different. Can anyone provide any words of encouragement or success stories?
